Chamber gearing up for annual banquet

By Kaitlin Norris - Contributing columnist

This year the Sampson County Super Sprint will be held Saturday, March 19. Not only locals, but people out of state participate in this event. What a way to represent Sampson County. To put the cherry on top, it is also for a great cause. The Triathlon will raise money for Fitness Renaissance, Sampson Regional Medical Hospital Foundation, and the LC Kerr School Garden. Get ready Sampson County Businesses, they will be ready to explore once the race is over. Sign up today and get ready to swim, bike, and run.

Opportunities to bring these types of events to the Sampson County area are ones that we do not want to pass up. Just think of the economic impact that it will have for Sampson County. This will give businesses the opportunity to create new customers, reach a broader network, and to show off their talents. The Chamber is thrilled to be apart of the Triathlon and I am positive that our residents know how to show off our southern hospitality.

On another important note, do not forget to reserve your seats at the Chamber Annual Celebration. It will be held Tuesday, Feb. 23 at the Sampson Agri-Expo Center. Kick off the night with a cocktail or two at 5:30 p.m. and enjoy a delicious dinner by Southern Smoke. Send those ballots in because time is running out. Help us celebrate the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce. It will be a night you do not want to miss.

Join us at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 15 to celebrate the Member of the Week, Evans Catering. If you have never tried their food then I encourage you to come out Monday morning and get to know the owner and make that connection. You will not regret it at your next get together, or event.

I encourage everyone to utilize the Chamber and to let us work for you! For any information about the Chamber, our events, or the opportunities that we offer contact us at 910-592-6177, visit us at 414 Warsaw Road, Clinton, or email us at [email protected]
